I need airier doughnuts

Recently I've really gotten into making doughnuts. It is one of the only time I've really used yeast to make anything. I like doing it, but I can't figure out how to make the doughnuts lighter. I've tried a few recipes that all taste good, but when I go to fill the doughnut there isn't as much room for the filling as I would like. Are there any techniques I can do to change this. Also, with the recipe I like the most, the dough gets really sticky and is hard to deal with. Any tips on that. Thanks
